One, Two, New Patterns!

I’ve been hard at work the last two days trying to get these two designs into pattern form for all of you knitters.  And I did it!  I’ve completed them just in time so that you have something fun to do during your holiday downtime.

When all of the holiday work is done you can relax in front of the fireplace with a cup of tea or cocoa or coffee, a plate of cookies, and knit your Little Darling cute winter wear.  If your weather has been anything like ours she’ll need it.

You’ll find both of these patterns to be a quick knit, especially the headband earwarmer.  And if you have more than one Little Darling, you can make each of them a winter set.

The patterns are for sale on my website, cindyricedesigns.com.  Click on the “Shop Patterns” tab.

 

“Catching Snowflakes”

Catching snowflakes was easy peasy this weekend as they fell practically the whole weekend long.  I think we got about 4 inches on Saturday night with another 8 inches or so on Sunday!  It’s a white winter wonderland out there, and I am VERY happy to be warm and cozy inside my house.

I finished up Lucy’s new ensemble yesterday, then we had our photo shoot.  I definitely wanted to use the snowy landscape as a back drop.  I brought out my studio light for front lighting.  It was perfect . . . and quick—my favorite kind of photo shoot.

Lucy’s eyelet capelet has 7 panels which are perfect for embellishing.  I’ve embroidered different snowflake compositions on each panel using mohair/silk yarn for snowflakes, white pearlized seed beads for tiny flakes, and clear seed beads for ice crystals.

Lucy’s vintage-styled headband earwarmer uses two strands of lace yarn to give it more thickness.  Each side is embellished with an aqua blue snowflake and matching seed beads.

The little muff hand warmer is the perfect size for Lucy’s hands, and is also embellished with an aqua snowflake.  The bracelet is incorporated into the muff as a handle.  You can see Lucy’s prized snowflake memento charm.  She will always remember this magical pre Christmas snowfall.
